How can parents help their student? STEP 1: Give me your email address!! I will send regular updates and study guides for tests with answers filled in. You will know ahead of time about tests. Email is an easy way to contact about classroom problems. It’s also the easiest way to reach me.
How can parents help their student? STEP 2: Know what your student is required to do in each class. Check their agenda notebook. Require them to write the assignments for the week into their notebook. (Each teacher keeps a one-week agenda posted each Monday). Keep students accountable to do this. Ask about it.
How can parents help their student? STEP 3: Get on parent portal. Make sure you have your password before leaving tonight. You can check student assignments and grades. Check it while your student watches. Let them know you are checking. Email teachers with questions you might have. That’s our job. Your password from elementary should still work.
